I haven't caught any new charges since leaving Va except cases pertaining to my Probation in Va ( failure to appears) am employed and for the most part changed my "deviant ways" will retaining counsel actually do me any help.
There are no guarantees but having an attorney is far more likely to give a positive result than not having one...
This answer is provided as a public service and as a general response to a general question, it is not meant, and should not be relied upon as specific legal advice, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialist designations. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Past results afford no guarantee of future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
Given that your case stems from Virginia, you will need to discuss this with a lawyer in that jurisdiction as only they can advise on the laws of VA. Now, as you absconded from probation, you will have issues. If you are stopped (say a traffic ticket), you will be arrested on the warrant and held until VA decides to extradite you. If you talk with a lawyer, perhaps they maybe able to work something out with the state, but absent discussing this with a lawyer in VA, you will not know. Review the list of criminal defense lawyers in Virginia - even ask the same question for Virginia if you want - and discuss this with them.
